Purse of the Month Club

I've often been asked how to join the Purse of the Month Club and I thought this would be a good subject for a blog post.
Every month, sisters Diana Wieler and Janet Ellis, send an email out to their mailing list with the Purse of the Month offerings. It's not just a purse, although you can buy just the purse.
They also offer coordinate ensembles, separates, accessories and a higher category called "Elite."

They do take requests to a certain extent as to size of a 12" doll body and length of skirt. I collected their bags for approximately three years and I adore them. They are made exceptionally well with wonderful fabrics and perfect little hardware. Now they're also offered in a scale to suit 16" dolls as well as 12" dolls.

Here is a very old photo showing bag, purse and shoes. I believe the outfit was also something they made.

This month's purses are influenced by Lulu Guinness bags. They are precious! Either bag is $32. plus shipping.

You might like the Lulu Library Tote that comes with a chiffon scarf for $30.

Please send all orders to:  dianawieler@sympatico.ca

Halloween Sybarite "Guillotine"

I missed the posting of this unique Halloween Sybarite. (Luckily for my credit card) Another collector was kind enough to send me the description and photo.
I just love the knife knitting needles. They're so fun. The gown is stunning. Someone commented that her lips are dark blue.
This beauty was a limited edition of 100 and sold out quickly as she was available to prior convention goers to pre-order.

Price before shipping = £255.25 or  $394.57

W Club Luncheon and Gala Dinner - Cinematic Convention Part #4

On Saturday, the W Club Luncheon offered attendees the information about an upcoming line which will feature a 12" Tulabelle.

The dolls - blonde, blue-eyed and very white.

Stage Presence
Véronique Perrin® Dressed Doll (W Club Luncheon Centerpiece)
 Sneak Peek Eden™ Dressed Doll (Giveaway Souvenir)

At the Saturday banquet it was announced that next year's convention will take place in Chicago.

The one character I would have wanted to buy is probably going to be the most difficult doll to obtain so I don't know if I'll try. There are 450 of them so she's not exactly 'rare.' I have lots of trades I can make for one but I'll just go and play with my Kingdom Dolls and forget all about her. Apparently Elyse is the new Vanessa.

Making An Entrance
Karolin Stone™ Dressed Doll (Main Souvenir Doll)
A new character being introduced in the Nu. Face collection, Ms. Karolin Stone, an intriguing and secretive model and actress with an eye for drama and a flair for fashion!
My overall impression of the offerings are very positive towards the dolls and their fashions.  The least appealing dolls IMO were the Poppy Parkers except for the centerpiece doll and the OOAK.  The Color Infusion male dolls rocked as did the workshop male. It goes to show you that a doll for $45. wearing a $35. outfit can be fabulous.
I'm not an Agnes fan but Vaughn's OOAK and the mini gift set were excellent.
A friend of mine told me yesterday that he spent $3000. so far. That's a lot of dolls.
I'm sure most attendees went home happy and loaded with dolls to keep and to sell.

What was your overall impression of the product?
Favorite? Least favorite? Quality?


2015 Cinematic Convention: Thursday Night Recap: Poppy Parker Luncheon, OOAK Auction Dolls, Sales Room Exclusives. Post #3

 While today was all about workshops and shopping, the day's highlight was the Poppy Parker Luncheon featuring star designer David Buttry!
Lucky conventioneers got the chance to purchase today's fabulous luncheon centerpiece doll. Then, as the event closed, everyone in attendance received an ultra cute Poppy Parker doll for free as a thank you gift for attending the luncheon. The air was electric all over again!
Here are images of the centerpiece and the complementary Poppy Parker doll available at the luncheon today!

Love and Let Love
Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll (Centerpiece) $150.

Paper Doll
Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll (Giveaway Souvenir)

I'm curious as to what charity this auction benefits. Or is there no charity? A convention of this scale should include some charitable event.
A tradition that started a few years back continues this year with the introduction of four new OOAK (one of a kind) creations by the IT Design team, which convention guests can enter to win raffle style! In addition to these four exquisite, ultra rare birds of beauty, convention guests also get to participate for the first time in raffles for chances to win their favorite complete collection of 2015!

Color Infusion Style Lab: 2015 Cinematic Convention Post #2

This year's COLOR INFUSION STYLE LAB at the CINEMATIC Convention represents a departure from the looks offered in the past during this activity. 
To celebrate the Cinematic theme, designer Vaughn Sawyers was inspired by old Hollywood for this collection and each character offered at the event represents one specific movie star of the golden era of Hollywood. Can you guess who they are?
The collection has a bold new look, fresh new packaging designed to protect the dolls and incredible outfits. Those who purchased the entire collection this year were simply thrilled with the choices. 

This year, the collection is composed of 12 dolls and 12 separate outfits. And for the first time since the start of this activity, the edition size per style is 600 pieces across the board. This was decided to ensure that each convention guest would get an equal chance to own one of each of these exciting characters!
 Text is quoted from IT release.

Color Infusion nude dolls  $45.  ($540 for all)
Color Infusion fashions  $35 ($420 for all)
All CI items are taxed 9% at point of sale.
If you were to buy the entire collection of 24 items your total would come to $1046.40.

Integrity Toys "Cinematic Convention" Post #1

W Club members started to get the photos of the convention dolls on October 21 but we were told to keep all of them confidential until Sunday the 25th.  I've seen a bunch of photos of the dolls posted on at least one dealers' site, on eBay and elsewhere. I don't see the purpose of withholding images from an event like this. Everyone wants to see convention dolls ASAP!!!!

So this is going to be a photo intense re-cap which I will break down into sections.

The Convention Collection 
Priced at $130. each except for Agnes who was $196.20 with tax. I'm guessing that those who pre-ordered the entire collection did not have to pay any tax at all. CA tax is pretty high.
